If you missed the last time I posted on Meanest Man Contest, well, then, I’ll forgive you. Just this once.
But, seriously, MMC is part of the lineup over at the newly created Rcrd Lbl, a company formed by Downtown Records and Peter Rojas, founder of Gizmodo and Engadget. (I won’t get into all the details; you can read a story in Wall Street Journal here.) In short, Rcrd Lbl is offering free downloads and costs are covered by sponsors/advertisers. You can read what blogger types are saying about it here.
I’m not really too concerned with the politics of it. For now, I’m happy Meanest Man Contest has a new track available for download called Partially Smart. According to Sneak Move, MMC will release one song per month for four months through Rcrd Lbl.
That’s cool by me. Partially Smart follows what I loved about MMC’s Throwing Away Broken Electronics â€“ where avant-garde studio experimenting meets bottom-line hip-hop beats.
Rcrd Lbl asks not to rehost downloads, and I couldn’t quite figure out how to embed the damn widget. So follow the link below to download Partially Smart. It’s worth it.
ALSO: MMC and Gold Robot Records are having a remix contest for MMC’s They Do. Get the details and a capella version of the track at Gold Robot.
